Jingle Bells

Written by John Pierpont

Tune:  "Jingle Bells"

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob-tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Chorus:

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
Soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated at my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seem'd his lot
He got into a drifed bank
And we, we got upsot!

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song
Just get a bob-tailed bay
Two-forty for his speed
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack!  You'll take the lead!
